Wearing black for Uga VII?

Fans plan on wearing black for Uga VII. (University of Georgia)

Fans plan on wearing black for Uga VII. (University of Georgia)

There’s been no official call for a “Blackout” and I fully expect the team to be in the traditional red helmets and jerseys Saturday against Kentucky.

Which is as it should be.

But I’m hearing from a lot of fans who plan to wear black, or at least black shirts, to the game as a mark of respect for the Seiler family on the death of Uga VII.

That sounds like a good idea to me. Not a big media thing, not a “Blackout.”

Just the Bulldog Nation mourning its lost mascot.

What do you think? If you’re going, do you plan on wearing black?

As a SEC chauvinists and LSU Tiger fan, I too regret the untimely
death of a beloved mascot.

Best regards to all at this sad moment.

Black helmets, jerseys, and pants will look awesome. They will also be in honor for UGA7.

How about all tech nerds staying off this board. This is for Uga VII. If all you have to do is run your mouth, run it on your own stupid board………….. SHOW SOME CLASS

I’m so sick of all the classless “people” on here who I’m sure are Tech fans who can’t stay on their own board. At least we have a mascot that’s not an annoying pest that gets swatted or sprayed & that will choke when it counts the most……….

Really did it take you a while to come up with that real zinger ?? LMAO !

Tech fan here. Good luck tonite against the ‘Cats…hope you avoid any more injuries and put your best team on the field next week against my Jackets. Sorry about your dog. Condolences to the Seilers on the loss of a family member.

By all means, wear black tonight. If UGA loses the game you will have more than one funeral to attend.
Is UGA going to play rap funeral music on the sidelines for the player’s dancing pleasure?

Having a dead dog wrapped in the State flag is disgusting. It is also disrespectful to everyone else in the State that could not give two rips about either this dog or UGA.

It’s a cute dog, it’s your mascot, but it’s just that. A dog serving as a mascot. It didn’t contribute to your school in any way other than maybe fertilizing your grass.

Get over it. Bury it somewhere in the woods, and move on.

ANYONE WHO TALKS THIS DOWN ARE IDIOTS! I NEVER LEAVE MESSAGES IN CAPS, BUT HERE I WILL.

LOOK AROUND YOU. HOW MANY TEAMS WEAR ALTERNATE UNIFORMS ON A REGULAR BASIS?? MORE THAN HALF OF THE TEAMS IN THE NCDOUBLEFREAKINGA!

ANYONE WHO TALKS DOWN ABOUT UGA VII AND THE FANS NEEDS TO LEAVE THE BOARDS. IM SORRY THAT TECH FANS DONT APPRECIATE TRADITION. BUT LETS SEE HOW MANY OF THEM BLOG WHEN THEIR STUPID CAR STOPS ROLLING.

TECH FANS FORGET THEY COMPLETELY FAILED TO DO A WHITE OUT LAST YEAR…ONLY THE STUDENTS GOT IT. ALSO, THEY WORE NAVY BLUE JERSEYS TWICE IN THIS DECADE AND LOST BOTH TIMES! INCLUDING AGAINST LSU LAST YEAR.

GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR LITTLE BEEHIVE BUTTS! WHEN WE CALLED FOR OUR FIRST BLACKOUT EVER EVERY SINGLE FAN SHOWED IN BLACK. THAT IS B/C OUR TEAM AND FAN UNITY IS TOP NOTCH! WE CARE…WE ARE A PART OF OUR PROGRAM…ALWAYS

U TECH FANS NEVER SHOW UP UNLESS UR TEAM IS DOING WELL. YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF IDIOTS

My condolences to UGA Nation. I’d like to see the football game wear a decal on their helmets to show respect to the little fella and Siler family. Be at peace knowing he is in heaven with his Dad. God Bless!

Wow the tech losers came out in droves today. Makes me feel good to know that a single dog can bother you that much. What’s it like to care so much about an opposing team’s mascot? Pathetic.

Please tell me this is a joke? This did not really happen did it? You mutts need some serious help if you wrapped a state flag around that fat lazy dog and buried it.

You Tech people really need to take a good look at your own mascot. I mean it wears tights. I heard it may not be at the UGA game because of a run in it’s hose or tights.

I see another player was arrested for having no license….what is it with these players? Are they that stupid??? Oh dumb question on my part. 4 and 5 star recruits who are so stupid they can’t even drive with a proper license? And they can’t play any better than .500? What a joke!

For a dog fan to say someone else has no class is like Osama Bin Laden calling someone a terroist. You people amaze me. Dogs smell each others butt, lick up vomit, growl and bark untill you smack em in the mouth, then go crawl under something and hide.

17-20 LOSING RECORD against Final AP Poll Top 25 teams the year we played them Coach Richt Era.

And, 7 LOSSES to teams who ended the season NOT in the Final AP Poll Top 25.

100 % of the fans BOO on 3rd and long with a run call.

Uga would have died anyway if he saw this one

Hey COX. GRADUATE ALREADY! Don’t let the door…

Hey I think they just threw another penalty flag on that CRAPPY Georgia MORON team. GACK!

It’s not the coach, It’s not the assistant coaches, It’s just a DUMPSTER FIRE OF A CLASS OF PLAYERS. Good riddance.

Hey #3….GO AWAY!!!!!!!!! You won’t make a UFL practice squad if the whole team quits!!!

May he rest in peace. He was cute. Too fat, but that was part of his charm. Not sure letting him get that fat was very humane, but maybe it was “genetic” or “metabolic”. People can’t use that excuse or purport to be cute when fat, unlike dogs and cats. Fat people usually don’t bother me that much except when they sit beside me on planes, occupying their seat as well as most of mine. War Eagle!

UK 34, UGA 27 this one is for you UGA VII!!! The teams lack luster play gave the dog heart trouble these past seasons that he couldn’t take it anymore. UGA go ahead and play like simps aganist Tech (like you did tonight) and decline any bowl that you are invited to.

UGA is bound for the POS Bowl – sponsored by The Ty-D-Bowl Company

UGA VII died of a broken heart watching these guys play. However, UGA VII said a prayer from DAWG heaven: Coach Richt, help the DAWGS and Free Willie. Anxiety about our defensive play caused much shame about being associated with the touted Junkyard defense. Don’t give UGA VIII a big bone but a new defensive coordinator. Otherwise, UGAs of past generations will haunt you down from DAWG heaven and will take a unrelenting bite out of your backside. Please move the graveyard out of Stanford Stadium, we just can’t stand watching this defensive. This play makes us look like girly Biscon Frisches not ferious stubborn bulldawgs.

Hunk Down,

UGA I – UGA VII

PS- If Willie stays, please get UGA VIII a season long prescription of lipitor and out patient psychotherapy visits.
